Stuff like

Bungee Jumping
Sky Diving
Climbing Mountains
Copying JACKASS stunts


It just seems like the ratio for doing these types of things is higher for white people.

Usually white people tend to be richer/more financially stable than minorities. They travel alot more and are more exposed to doing a wider range of activities.

Minorities are more likely to grow up in poverty and gravitate towards activities more confined to their homes and neighborhoods. Therefore they are more used to doing things with families and friends, hanging out at other friends houses and around the street. So things like mountain climbing and sky diving aren't very popular or have much appeal.

I feel like it has more to do with minorities thinking the risks for those types of activities are too high or that the  idea of doing it is too scary. That's usually the reason given even by minorities that are financially stable.

That's a generalization. Minorities probably like thrills too but their thrills may be accessible in different forms. Grand theft auto, drug smuggling. Just kidding. I think all people enjoy thrills once in a while.
